Global spy system ECHELON confirmed at last – by leaked Snowden files
Special ReportDuncan Campbell has spent decades unmasking Britain's super-secretive GCHQ, its spying programmes, and its cosy relationship with America's NSA. Today, he retells his life's work exposing the government's over-reaching surveillance, and reveals documents from the leaked Snowden files confirming the history of the fearsome ECHELON intercept project. This story is also published simultaneously today by The Intercept. Duncan's Register Christmas Lecture from last year is also, at long last, now available for viewing. In it, he tells the same fascinating story.
